Reply To: Researching surgeons – what questions to ask
I do like that this surgeon said he’s been using the same mesh for ages (at least a decade I believe). He gave me the name but I’ve forgotten and plan to ask him specifically what it was. And he also did say he’s happy to do the non-mesh repair if I choose. And he said one study suggested mesh versus non-mesh at three years had the exact same recurrence rate. No better or worse. They just don’t really know beyond that perhaps what the recurrence rate is. He did say it looked great, though, and he seemed confident in that method.
